Wind Brings By Norma Bramble Signpost Staff Writer An unusually strong wind with gusts up to a hundred miles per hour brought serious damage to Weber's campus and a full day vacation to Weber's students last Friday. The winds, which came out of the canyons from the east, caused hundreds of dollars of damage to the various buildings on campus. The most serious damage came LADY IN THE TUB Students OK By Patti Meikle, Signpost Staff Writer (Editor's note: This is the second in a series of student opinion polls on pertinent andin-pertinent-subjects.) Question: Do you think that the library group study room is worthwhile as a place to study? A freshman, Nancy Taylor, said: "I can study just fine in the group study room if there aren't any interesting 'distractions' around." Ralph Peterson, freshman class president, said: "I like the group study room's informality. It's a good place to talk over assignments. Most students feel this way, but some go in there just to read jokes or visit with their friends." LDS Night of Fun Running through the lobby of Hotel Ben Lomond and similar Ogden establishments last Thursday evening were over 200 costumed masqueraders under the auspices of Lambda Delta Sigma Halloween party. The party began in the Institute of Religion at Weber's campus at 7:30 p.m. Every person was required to show an LDS club card at the door, as few were recognizable even to their bet friends. Large Crowd When a large enough crowd had gathered, they left the Institute ()(;di;n, utaii r . .1 . u I J? I v Severe Damage To Campus ! from the small gravel on the roofs of the four classroom buildings. This gravel blew into the build-, ings just west and broke the win- dows in all the east doors. ; In addition it chipped the paint I in the louvres and doors. These louvres saved all but a few of the windows. Severe Damage The Institute Building suffered very severe damage. Many windows were broken and roofing was blown off. Group Study Can Work Together Kristine Jensen, a sophomore: "It's good to have a place like the group study room, where students can work together, but it sure can get noisy in there." "The group study room is worthwhile when I'm reviewing material with somebody," said Judy McDonald, a freshman, "but when I study seriously by myself, I go across the hall." "Why not have someone regulate the noise in there?" Floyd Braunberger, a sophomore, suggested. "Then, people who like studying together won't have to study in the reference room, where conversation is out." Climaxed Sy Best with a sheriff escort to the tabernacle parking lot where they clasped hands and proceeded to haunt the town. At !) p.m., they entered the Egyptian Theater to show their costumes to the public between shows. Back at the institute, a prize for the best costumes worn by a boy and a girl was awarded to Linda Pfaender and Richard Dayton. Linda was dressed like a chain gang prisoner, and Richard played the part of an escaped gorilla complete with part of a November (, 1 !)"!) 4 1 O5 V The technical building pulled through with hardly a scratch. Perhaps most remarkable was how the T.U.B. survived. Only two small windows were cracked. This is remarkable when this frame building is compared to the much more sturdy buildings which suffered extensive damage. Most seriously hurt was the team building in the stadium. The roof was blown completely off and into the parking lot. Our team members at Saturdays game remarked that it looked like they were sitting in a bombed out building in France during the war. Called Holiday After surveying the damage President Miller called off classes for the day. This brought an unexpected holiday to W'eber's two thousand students. For those who hadn't got out of bed, it was back to sleep. For many who were up when the announcement came over the radio it was back to bed. For hundreds of students who don't listen to the radio in the i morning it meant an unnecessary trip to the campus. This week the windows in the doors were boarded up. On Tuesday the glazers replaced the windows.This wind brought both good and bad to the campus. It was bad for its cost and good for the vacation it brought. Costume Award broken foot chain. The party ended with story telling, refreshments, and dancing. CALENDAR For week of Nov. 6-13 Nov. G Diary of Anne Frank, S:30, Moench Auditorium.

Three Additional Shows Run Friday, Saturday By Lois Stoddard, Signpost Special Writer "The Diary of Anne Frank" was presented last night as the first of four performances. The other three will run Friday and Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. In the opinion of this reviewer it was one of the greatest events in Weber College dramatic history. It was a show that held the audience captivated from beginning to end. The set was a masterpiece of design. It looked just as a dirty crowded attic should look. The scene designer, John M. Elzey who also directed the production, seemed to leave little to the imagination of the audience. Kathryn Ann Cowley was brilliant as Anne. She seemed to be filled with an infectiousness that spread through the entire play. Her mood changes were smooth and pacing seemed just about right. Good Voice Mr. Frank, portrayed by Herb Spence, had a good voice and accent. His one trouble, however, seemed to be the effective coordination of his hands and voice. His hands seemed reluctant to submit to gestures and when they did it was done stiffly. Peter Van Daan (Steve Rubin) had no outstanding scenes but his entire role was well assimilated into the play. Sharon Allred has lost no polish or talent since she won the best actress award at Weber in 1!).jo She displays stage presence and poise that would make a professional performer envious. Her one trouble seemed to be lack of articulation.Lynn Peterson as Mrs. Frank was especially good in the dream scene, and the thievery scene. However, she looked much too young. Bob Wrood as Mr. Van Daan was excellent in his virile scenes but in the sorrowful and repent-ent one, he was not on the same j level as the others. - Consistent Character Bob Peters played Mr. Dussel very well. His character was consistent throughout the performance. Clarence Socwell lost quite a few of his lines but his character remained consistent, also. Judy Butler and Susan Brown had little chance to display their talent but the opportunities they did have proved that their ability is more than adequate. Lighting, costumes and props were all very adequate and helped the mood of the play rather than hinder it. Concert Series Headlines'Torre' Monday, Nov. !, will be a pleasurable experience for the concert goers of Wreber College, when Ray de la Torre brings his classic guitar to the O.H.S. Auditorium, 8:15 p.m. Ray de la Torre, who is one of the few guitarists with quality of tone and technique, began studying the guitar at a very early age and soon distinguished himself as a great concert guitarist. His greatness has taken him to America, Canada, Europe, the Near East, and Asia, where he has delighted his audiences with his music, both contemporary and classical. With such a fine reputation, Mr. de la Torre can be rightly called "a master in his medium."Weber College students and faculty will be admitted to the concert on their student activity cards.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
